 Welcome to my Tuesday Fun 😁
Nice warm hug.
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on,
As well as loads of layers,
Winter leggings!
I uncovered Sexy Beast
I gave hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I left.
There was a slight nip in the air.
Two winter hats and big big gloves went on. 
Turned on my lights.
Let's rock 'n' roll 🍭
I had lots of BOINGs to deal with.
Lots of Limbo dancers drivers going under the stick!
Some drivers did actually stop for me!
I survived the morning shift.
I picked up the newspaper on the way back home.
The coffee machine went on.
Unloaded dishwasher.
The soup maker came out.
Filled it up with veggies and stock and on it went.
Tried to get hold of my 🍭 boss to give her the license plate of the Land Rover from yesterday.
In the end I texted her it.
Then I was told, I had to report it myself.
I tried 101 and gave up after 5 minutes.
I need a coffee now.
I gone on with writing the blog from yesterday.
Once finished.
Now to start on the soup I made this morning.

No need for the big big sunglasses.
It still feels cold.

I turn on my lights.
Now for a little rabbit with my friends.
Glad I put on my big big gloves as it was freezing when I took them off!
I said goodbye to my friends.
My boss is coming down this week to see how bad it is.
Still having cars on the otherside failing to stop.
Same man, in the same van failed to stop on the second day running...
At least I survived!
Two more BOINGs happened.
I covered up Sexy Beast.
Much needed brew time.
Then I wrote a report to the Police on what happened yesterday.
All it takes is another car driver doing it and either they hit me or the people I am crossing over the road!
I gave hubby a sloppy wet 💋 when he came home.

Brew with breakfast.
We were expecting two deliveries of things to do our DIY project with.
First up was Wickes Delivery.
Then it was the Tile delivery.

Then while I went off to get the newspaper.
Hubby had a tip run to do.
I noticed a car had parked on double yellow lines when I was on the way back to Sexy Beast.
I also noticed the parking ticket on its windscreen!
Now for a much deserved coffee when I got back.
We dropped son off at work.
We popped in to see my parents.
We had a good chat.
 Then onto Sainsburys.
I have no more room for anymore British Bake Off Books.
Back home to unpack shopping.
Then it was light lunchtime.

Still loads of traffic to deal with.

The coffee machine was put on.
While that was doing the coffee, 
I watered the plants.
Poured my coffee,
Then mopped the kitchen floor.
I filled in the form for permission, took a picture of it, and emailed the council department.
The email bounced back to me!
Copy and pasted the email address off the council website.
It did not bounce this time.
DPD redelivered my parcel to a shop for me to pick up later on this afternoon!
Woo Hoo!
Much needed coffee now!
Tried to write yesterday's blog post.
However as normal,
I got sidetracked.
Trying to find some draught excluders.....
Either too small, too expensive, or I would have to wait for some in November!
Son came back, and he wore his fancy dress outfit, to show me how he looked.
Where's Wally!
His Where Wally cake has to be finished for tomorrow.
More books arrived for me to read!
Light lunch.
Then it's back out in the sunshine.
On goes the summer coat.
I go and get a ice-lolly.
Turn on my lights.
Collects Lollypop stick.
Then to enjoy the sun's rays with ice lolly.
Chatted to one friend.
Then I started the afternoon shift.
Some car drivers drove straight under my stick....
Oh well....
One Speedy car driver had to slam his brakes on, as I was in the middle of the road, and not going on nowhere....
Finished in one piece.
Now to go and pick up my parcel.
I had some laughs in there.
Back home I go.
Now to get the tea on the go....
Hubby came home and had a sloppy wet 💋
